The Rev. Brendan Y. Boone, a native of Southeast Virginia, was raised as a Baptist in the African-American tradition and was nurtured in a church environment which valued and emphasized the importance of living in community with all people, from all experiences of life. Having these principles instilled in him from childhood has fueled his passion for tearing down the walls of the institutional church and building up communities of faith which embody the message and ministry of The Christ. Rev. Boone has been involved in Metropolitan Community Churches for over thirty (30) years, serving in several leadership capacities on the local, district/regional/network and denominational levels through the years.

A graduate of the Hampton Institute (Va.) and Wesley Theological Seminary (D.C.), Rev. Boone has served MCC’s in Virginia, The District of Columbia and North Carolina where for 14 years he served as the Senior Pastor of St. John’s Metropolitan Community Church in Raleigh, N.C. In addition to his pastoral responsibilities in Raleigh, Rev. Boone also served as the Network Team Leader for MCC churches in North Carolina, South Carolina and Eastern Tennessee until 2016. A former member of the MCC Moderator’s Theologies Team, Rev. Boone currently serves as a member of the People of African Descent (PAD) Working Group, Co-Lead of the MCC General Conference Security Team and Lead for the PAD Security Team. He and his wife, Sandra, now reside in Daytona Beach, Florida with their four-legged child, Molly.
